Children whose mothers ate nuts during pregnancy possible increases the risk of peanut allergy. But investigators rejected that recommendation because the study was not entirely clear.
“The results of these studies have been killed from both sides,” said Dr. Scott. H. Sicherer, one of the researchers from Mount Snai School of Medicine in New York City.
In their research, Sicherer and colleagues studied at five sites in several countries involving 500 infants aged 3 to 15 months who are allergic to milk and eggs, but not found on peanut allergy.
